Caitlyn Burke named a writing coach at Saint Michael's College

Colchester, Vt. – Caitlyn Burke, daughter of Cathleen and Frederick Burke of Shrewsbury, has been named a writing coach at Saint Michael's College for the fall 2012 semester. Burke, a junior history and English double major, was selected from nominees submitted by the college faculty to be one of 27 student coaches at the liberal arts college located in Burlington, Vt. She graduated from Shrewsbury High School before entering Saint Michael's.

The coaches are an elite group who do professional work-one-on-one with their peers at the college, diagnosing writing problems, designing strategies to help. The coaches work with clients who seek guidance regarding writing assignments for their courses. They follow the premise, “Teach the writer, not the writing,” and thereby don’t just correct a given paper, but work with writers, so that they will have skills to improve their writing on their own in future assignments.
